On my Pearl 8130 Roxio media manager can access the internal memory just as easily as the media card, moving images or whatever to/from internal memory to/from either the memory card or to/from my computer. Not sure why you're having that problem.
I was using the desktop manager 4.7 /Roxio media manager to be able to remove the photos taken by my Blackberry pearl since they are set to store in device memory and not in the storage media (micro-SD). Well upon transferring files to my desktop , some image files would say "drawing failed" when I would open them using Windows Picture viewer, so I deleted them in batch. I accidentally deleted some that were not corrupted.
I have recovered images from my PC's Hard-drive, but I would like to know if there is software that will specifically recover photos from the black berry's device memory. My current PC file recovery won't see the Blackberry Pearl as a drive letter so it's not scan-able.
I have the BlackBerry Pearl 8100
PC specs : Windows XP-SP2, Pentium III, 1GB ram.
Thanks in advance for the info
